Cara Delevingne joins the select group of retired supermodels after a revealing interview with The Times, where she was quoted saying the modelling industry “disgusts” her. The 23-year old Brit announced her retirement from this business to pursue other projects - particularly related to the film industry.

The British model says is quitting the catlwalk

Delevingne, who has been dubbed Kate Moss’ successor by many, opened up about sexual harassment and sexism in the fashion world, stating that "it's horrible and it's disgusting. [We're talking about] young girls. You start when you are really young and you do, you get subjected to … not great stuff."

The model told the paper she wasn’t enjoying the job, and she got a skin condition, psoriasis, due to the stress. "It didn't make me grow at all as a human being. And I kind of forgot how young I was. I felt so old," said St. Vincents’s girlfriend, who also revealed she ended up hating herself and her body.

This is however not the first time Chanel’s muse says she is quitting the fashion industry. In 2013 the British it-girl talked about a possible retirement but continued posing for high-end brands.

Delevingne is currently starring in a teen drama called Paper Towns and has a role in Suicide Squad, opening in August 2016.
